iEi’s MODAT-550A mobile data collector


The new iEi MODAT-550A Mobile Data Collector from ICP Electronics Australia features an Octa-core 64-bit Cortex-A53 1.5 GHz processor, 16GB eMMC 2GB LPDDR3 onboard memory, up to 64GB Storage and an Android 7.0 operating system.

MODAT-550A is compact yet efficient with dimensions 160.9 mm x 85.4 mm x 28.85 mm. Likewise, the mobile data collector is rich in terms of I/O Interface, as it includes 1 x Mic, 1 x MiniSD Slot, 1 x power in, 1 x power switch, 1 x SD slot, 1 x speaker, and 1 x USB 2.0, 1 x 0.5W speaker, 1 x Headset/Mic-in, and 1x High-speed Micro USB 2.0 OTG. Furthermore, in regards to displaying the MODAT-550A has 1080x1920 max resolution and 5-point capacitive.

Lastly, MODAT-550A can survive in a tough environment as it has an IP65 rating. Thus, it can endure a 1.5m drop and withstand heat (with the operating temperature -10°C ~ 50°C).

Key features include:

  • 1.5m Drop Survival and IP 65 Protection
  • Octa-Core 64-bit Cortex-A53 1.5 GHz Processor
  • 5.5" Display PDA
  • Optional GSM (850, 900, 1800, 1900)
  • WCDMA (Band 1, 2, 5, 8)
  • TDS-CDMA (Band 34, 39)
  • LTE FDD (Band 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 20)
  • TDD (Band 38, 39, 40, 41b)
